Steelers LB James Harrison To Have Surgery Monday

Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison revealed Friday night on his Twitter account that he will undergo offseason back surgery on Monday and will be down about 4 to 6 weeks. Harrison suffered the right shoulder injury in the team\’s playoff win over the Baltimore Ravens and head coach Mike Tomlin said after the game that Harrison would be in some discomfort for the AFC Championship game. Many players are hurrying to have offseason surgery before a potential lockout takes place and they are no longer covered by insurance. Harrison did not miss a game this year for the Steelers and recorded 100 total tackles and 11 sacks during the regular season.

    this was a very hard loss to deal with when you break down the game and see that the steelers out played the green bay packers but just those 3 turnovers killed them but they will be back to steeler football next season and they will get that 7th lombardi trophy. I know that tomlin will have them ready and will sole the issues on the field were they are weak such as the corner positions. GO STEELERS IN 2011 WE LOVE YA BLACK AND GOLD.
